  • Which do you want first: good news or bad
    When someone says, “I have good news and bad news,” which one do you prefer to hear first?
    Joe went to his doctor who posed that question to him.
    “Give me the good news first,” Joe said.
    “You have 24 hours to live,” the doctor told him.
    Clutching his chest, Joe said, “If that’s the good news, what’s the bad news?”
    The doctor said, “I meant to tell you yesterday.”
    Ba dump bump. (Groan.)

  • By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking Columnist

    I worked out and had a smoothie for breakfast every day last week. I even tried a new recipe for something I have never made before, granola bars.

    I would have never guessed these things were so easy to make and now that I see how quick and yummy they are I am excited to switch them up a bit by adding different nuts and dried fruits to the recipe.

  • The following is from Wyatt Shely’s ‘Our Heritage’ column that appeared in Jan. 6, 1966 issue of The Anderson News.

    Even before the Village of Tyrone was incorporated (1879) the people of that community manifested a keen interest in education.

    Though the inhabitants of the valley, now Tyrone, were very few prior to 1850, one of our first schools was on the road leading to Subletts (Shryock’s) ferry.
